It appears the case of a man accused of assaulting the Leavenworth County undersheriff will be resolved with a plea agreement.

But the details of the plea agreement have not yet been released.

A trial for Shanenon D. Kagen was scheduled to begin Thursday in Leavenworth County District Court.

But the trial was canceled after Kagen appeared in court Wednesday with his attorney, Amy Ahrens.

Ahrens said her client wants to enter a plea in the case. But she requested that a plea hearing be scheduled for a future date.

“We have a written plea agreement,” said Assistant County Attorney Michael Jones, who is prosecuting the case.

He said it is just of matter of a plea being entered at a later date.

Kagen, 32, is charged with aggravated assault of a law enforcement officer for an incident that is alleged to have occurred June 3, 2015, in a parking lot at the Justice Center. The Justice Center houses the Leavenworth County Sheriff’s Office as well as the courtrooms for Leavenworth County District Court.

The victim in the case is Leavenworth County Undersheriff Jim Sherley.

Kagen allegedly assaulted Sherley while racing away from a parking lot.

District Judge Gunnar Sundby scheduled a plea hearing for Nov. 9.
